Little Rosie Posie/Rose Buddy let me pet her/him, while she/he was eating today. Yippee. It is such a little dear. I don’t really ‘need’ this little critter, but could not say no to it’s pitiful cries when he first came around last week.
Today was my BSF meeting. I am so glad to be a part of this Bible study. I am meeting wonderful ladies of all ages, nationalities and denominations. Our focus is on Jesus, who is God Almighty, as we study the book of Revelation. I am enjoying getting to know the smaller group of ladies that I’m in and really look forward to getting to know them better in the coming weeks, as well as having my faith strengthened with this study.
Over the weekend I made yet another beaded heart. I took a shell fragment that spoke to me and got started. I’ve many shell fragments and whole ones too to work with. DH and I picked them up whenever we would walk the beach. It makes me feel like going to the beach to do just that once again. I would be out of my ‘comfort zone’ going by myself, but being near the ocean is healing in many ways.
I also used three fresh water pearls that I’d bought at Michael’s I think. I love them and have several colors of them.
Here is a collage of the pins I’ve made so far. My sis-in-law has several ladies interested in seeing these and maybe purchasing, so I made up the collage for her to show them.
This past Sunday on my way home from lunch with a friend and her family, I stopped and picked up a small Christmas tree (curbside) that I’d passed on my way earlier. It was loaded with lights and I plugged them in when I got home and they didn’t work. I started to unwind the lights and realized it was going to be a miserable job, so I got some wire cutters and cut it into small sections. It took me about 30 minutes or so to get them off and out of the tree. The tree was strangled by the lights, you could hardly unfold the branches. I do believe it was a 100 lite strand. How they even wound them in the tree like they did is beyond me.
The last tree I found was with my DH, our last ‘curbside shopping’ together in Sept of 2012. That tree I call my Charlie Brown tree. It is funky but I love it.
The latest, strangled with lights.
Well, I’m starting to feel ready to get horizontal to read before sleep.
Today was a good day and I am thankful.
I will close with a photo of a leaf I found in the driveway the other day. Heart shapes always catch my attention.
The caption I put on the leaf is from something I found online after losing my Dear Husband.
Life goes on, grief isn’t as raw, although it is still there. It is not something that will ever go away. It’s part of my life, part of who I am. But it will not break me, or hold me in a pit of dark despair. I know my husband is with his Creator and all is well.
